Doing the new job thing has made me reschedule many things. I don't really do live journal during the day and consequently don't really read as much and post as much as I used to.
I don't remember a ton about the last month that is of much interest. Leslie and I bought ourselves G1 phones from T-Mobile (The google phone, Android OS...). I am really liking it. I restructured all my email around it. I now use Google Apps
on my jeffmartin.com domain and my mail goes all to gmail now. I use Popfile
to have my computer automatically organize my mail (All my SCA mail goes into one spot, notifications, maillist, work, personal, spam ... all to their own separate labels, auto-magically.)
One of the reasons I like my phone so much is that now I can listen to podcasts away from my computer (and the phone even can download them without connecting to my computer) I listen to tech podcasts mostly but I discoved the Lions Road SCA podcast in the last month or two and have enjoyed listening to it.
For the last two weeks, the Lions Road guys have been doing a live recording of their show and I have phoned/skyped in during the show. bertana
will probably say I sound like a dork, but oh well I am having fun with it. Check it out at the LionsRoad.org
. You don't need an Ipod or anything and can just listen to it on your computer. They are trying hard to make the SCA accessible to more people and I think this is a good thing that could use support.
In other news, I was awarded the Blood of Fenris on Sunday during warpractice which was a total suprise to me. Also on Sunday evening, I sent in my letter of intent to fight in crown. This had more to do with the King reminding people to send it in and less to do with being awarded the Blood of Fenris.
